-1 for Kaffeine since it doesnt start playing videos like Jonathan said,most
people would expect the video to start playing instantly and would not
fiddle around looking for answers.
On the other hand dragon player is no better with no default subtitle
support, unfortunately as i can see, smplayer brings alot of stuff on to the
CD when added as the default video player ( After this operation, 25.9MB of
additional disk space will be used. ) which is not good as well.
But thats just my 2 cents ;)
